I am a chartered occupational psychologist with the British Psychological Society. My research focuses on unseen disabilities, namely ADHD. I am a neurodiversity advocate and I am passionate about creating inclusive workplaces for all by adopting a systemic and evidence-based approach.

Outside of the Cornell Lab

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, running, and playing soccer. I love spending time with my family. I also love cats, big and small!
